Just curious if anybody knows how to track exactly where the packet loss is once you run smokeping
Uhhhhh moderators where you at? Can i get some feedback please.
I think the question is a bit out of moderators scope for this forum. Have you tried DSLReport's Networking forum? In general, the results don't look too bad for the Michigan result. Do you live near Michigan?
I found this SmokePing FAQ if that helps. Basically you want a solid green line with as few spikes as possible.
Im in Arizona and most of mine never show without spikes and packet loss. The patch fortnite put out did nothing for my issue with packet loss while gaming. Its has to be something else because other internet activities are laggy and video chat is awful.
Well going of that faq I have some major issues
I think some more data would help give the smokeping data context. Try running a tracert to any server or IP outside your network, like google.com. Then look at the 2nd hop, right after your router IP. Should be something like 10.x.x.x. Then ping -t that IP as you do the smokeping tests. This will show if there is any local latency to your CMTS.
If those tests are good, then the questions is which routes are bad for you. Knowing which servers the smokeping test uses would allow you to run a tracert to them to show where the latency is occurring. I know the infamous server right now are Amazon's for games like Fortnite.
I posted a response but it disappeared. Thanks for the help, I ran pathping to google on saturday just havent had time to do more.
